Here is the clicky to the Fred Neil site. The lyrics are not readily apparent, though. If you click on the discography link, then on a specific album, a small "Lyrics" link appears for each album. Thanks for pointing this out, iamjohnne.

the song that plays when you open the site is The Dolphins Fred recorded that back in sixty seven or sixty eight I am not sure which. He was a marvelous singer and songwriter. NOt enough people have heard his music.

There was a thread not too long ago when Fred died, but I can't find it in the Forum search. Maybe someone else will have better luck...there were some fine reminiscences from folks who knew him in Florida, as I recall. I remember Dave Herman used to play his songs a lot on WMMR in Philadelphia, 1969-70 or thereabouts. I always loved "The Dolphins". What a voice....

Wasn't there some kind of to-do with Fred and the "Midnight Cowboy" theme? I know that in the movie Harry Nilsson sings Fred's song, "Everybody's Talkin'", but I remember there was a story about why they didn't use Fred's recording of it.

Aloha,
Mark

Mark, To find the thread here in the forum, on the main forum page, go to the search and filter Fred Neil then set the other thingy for 60 days back, then it will come up. You asked about why Nilson's recording of Everybody's Talkin" was used instead of Freddie's, it had soemthing to do with his commitment to Capitol Records. To find out lots more about him and the others who he influenced, go to the FredNeil.com and click "Everybody's Talking" It is a forum that was started the day after he died. You would be amazed at who all has posted there. He was certainly an amazing man, I feel privledged to have briefly known him and to have been able to hear him live. He was magical.
